# Math Problem Solving Strategies Poster

The on-looking children may be more interested in acting it out because other children are involved.

Sometimes, though, the children acting out the problem may get less out of the exercise than the children watching.

There are a number of common strategies that children of primary age can use to help them solve problems.

We discuss below several that will be of value for problems on this web-site and in books on problem solving.

Common Problem Solving Strategies We have provided a copymaster for these strategies so that you can make posters and display them in your classroom.

It consists of a page per strategy with space provided to insert the name of any problem that you come across that uses that particular strategy (Act it out, Draw, Guess, Make a List).

This includes children themselves, hence the link between Act it Out and Use Equipment.

One of the difficulties with using equipment is keeping track of the solution. The children need to be encouraged to keep track of their working as they manipulate the equipment.

We have found that this kind of poster provides good revision for children. Through these links, children can see that mathematics is not only connected by skills but also by processes.

We now look at each of the following strategies and discuss them in some depth. If they can also check that the guess fits the conditions of the problem, then they have mastered guess and check.
